Sustainability governance

Gränges sustainability efforts are led by Group Management and the SVP Sustainability, who coordinates, facilitates and drives the global sustainability strategy, long-term targets and sustainability related policies. The SVP Sustainability also communicates on sustainability performance and progress to different stakeholders and coordinates a continuous stakeholder dialogue.

Gränges’ CEO regularly presents global sustainability performance to the Board of Directors, who reviews and monitors performance against the company’s targets. The Board of Directors is the body which approves the company’s global sustainability strategy, longterm targets and policies, and adopts the annual sustainability report.

Group Management ensures that Gränges’ global sustainability strategy, long-term targets and policies are aligned with the company’s vision and strategy. Group Management also reviews and monitors sustainability performance against sustainability targets, as well as makes decisions related to global sustainability priorities.

As illustrated below, each sustainability pillar is governed by one member of Group Management. This individual proposes global sustainability priorities and coordinates with Gränges’ local operations through cross-regional teams to implement local sustainability activities within a specific sustainability pillar. From May 2020, the SVP Sustainability governs the sustainability pillar Responsible and sustainable sourcing.

The local operations in turn ensure that a local sustainability strategy, long-term targets and policies are in place and aligned with the global strategy and the local needs. Operations also report on local sustainability performance and progress.
